The Big Book Of Font Combinations

English | 2010 | ISBN: n/a | 374 Pages | True PDF | 4.74 MB


It's the Big Book of Font Combinations, and it's available now as a PDF ebook for $24.95. The book is over 370 pages, most of which are devoted to showing how these fonts work together.

But Douglas has gone farther than just putting two typefaces together. He's created a really useful page of samples for each combo, including showing you how the typefaces look:
- In regular, bold, italic and bold italic fonts
- With initial drop caps in both regular and bold variations
- Reversed as white against a black background
- Overprinted on a light tint
- In two different forms of tabular composition
- Centered in a ruled box

This makes for a page that is crammed with information, but in a good way. The book acts both as a type specimen book for these wonderful typefaces, but also as a fascinating resources about how they complement or contrast with each other.

In the sample page above you can see a combination of Optima and Bembo, two typefaces I would never have thought to combine, yet they have an odd harmony. It's discoveries like this that are the best thing about the Big Book of Font Combinations. Seeing even familiar typefacesin a new way through combinations and the subtle effects one type design exerts on another when close by.
